There’s a great little birding lodge located on Big Bear Island. It’s two bedrooms and has bird feeders set up for viewing birds and hummingbirds. Dee Kuder has recorded over 100 species from this location. The cabin is very private, you have your own dock and sand beach. Check out the Island Cabin on Crane Lake.

    The Ross Light is the name given to this beautiful phenomenon by Sigurd Olson. He wrote about it in an essay by that name in his book Runes of the North. In the summer of 1948, Sigurd took a reporter and a photographer from the Saturday Evening Post on a canoe trip in the Quetico-Superior region of northern Minnesota and Ontario, trying to bring national attention to the threat that uncontrolled seaplane traffic posed to the wilderness. The photographer’s name was Frank Ross, and from him Sigurd gained a deeper understanding and appreciation of light and its effect on a landscape and a human mind. He described the first time he saw it with Ross, when near sunset they spotted a large whitetail buck wading at the edge of a beach. Behind it loomed spruces, tall and dark.

    Thank you for the insight! Sigurd Olson wrote the most beautiful prose I have ever read. We are so fortunate to live in this grand place. Please visit soon!

    Hi Dee,
    It’s so fun to read you blog and to see the wonders of the world that you capture so beautifully with your camera. Even better is that I got to experience the Spruce Grouse and the Indian Pipe with you. Reading your blog takes me both in mind and spirit up to the great Crane Lake. Thanks for sharing.
